My friend and former co-worker "Chef Laura Romito" has started this great new tour company called Taste-Full-Tours..
I just spoke with her and if we can fill at least 17 spots (up to 28) we will be able to get our own private tour of Zingerman's Deli, Zingerman's Creamery and Zingerman's Bake Shop as well as a favorite Middle Eastern restaurant (they claim the falafel is the best you will find this side of the Nile), a tremendous local wine shop, an outstanding produce and specialty foods and flower shop, and an elegant spice and tea venue.
The tour runs about 5 hours (usually between 9am - 4pm) and will depart on a private shuttle from the corner of 6th and Lafayette Streets in downtown Royal Oak (adjacent to the parking structure) the cost is $75 per person.
It looks like a weekday will work best as far as traffic in and out of the shops and it will probably be during the first or second week of August.
Let me know A.S.A.P if you are interested and what dates you can or cannot make it.
I hope you will come along even if you have already been to a few of these spots, because truthfully….
This promises to be a great "Girls Day Out Adventure”!

10 years ago....if someone would have told me that I would be loading 8 children into "MY" minivan to go to the park....I would have laughed hysterically and said "Never Happen". Well it happened! I guess I will officially do anything to keep my child occupied, including taking every child in the neighborhood to the park with us. I have reached that mid-summer meltdown point where I never want to hear another child's voice for the rest of my life! I am running out of ideas..... Park, Beach, Zoo, Waterpark, Art Project, Nature Center, Bake Something...Repeat! I personally think that boys just like to argue and taunt each other mercilessly. I was trying to think back to when I was young and I do not remember purposely wanting to annoy each other, we just played! I would just like 5 minutes of silence please! Thank God for weekend getaways with the girls! 3 more days...3 more days...3 more days!
